Houdini, “The Handcuff King”

This is the first appearance at this theatre of this most talked of entertainer. We discovered this afternoon that closing the show was no place for an act of this character, and beginning with the night show we moved him up to the position of opening the second half. We advertised Houdini very big during the past two weeks and I expect he will draw quite some business.
